Create Your Catch-M
“To often we underestimate the power of a smile which has the potential to turn a life around.”
CATCH-M is your Magical, Mystical, Magnificent Smile! First, take a moment to experience your smile! Feel it come all the way up from your belly, through your chest, & shine from your face who you are.
Haitian Children, who lost homes & family in The 2010 Earthquake, are having fun with the CATCH-M creations as they are each consider the importance of believing in themselves and their dreams.
“The—SHHH—Secret to living the life of your dreams is found in the power of your smile.”
Second, draw your CATCH-M, your MAGNIFICENT SMILE!
Know stars above, around, & within you continually reflect back your smile to remind you to BELIEVE in yourself, in others, & all that is!
To draw your “Big Belly Smile”
Grab a mirror. Have a blast studying your smile. Then pick a medium— Socks, shirts, hats, shoes, paper, plates, paint, pens, sidewalk chalk, sticks & dirt, or whatever you think—and draw your CATCH-M!
THIRD, SHARE YOUR SMILE— THERE IS NO GREATER GIFT THEN GETTING SOMEONE TO SMILE BIG & CATCH CATCH-M TOO:
So take your smile on a CATCH-M ADVENTURE – On a school field trip, out to dinner, to school, a family vacation, or wherever you choose! Remind others to celebrate their smiles too, take pictures with your CATCH-M’s, & journal as you do!
A dear friend surprised me at her school visit with a matching CATCH-M shirt.
- On your CATCH-M ADVENTURE build a LIVE BIG community:
Have a blast building community by sharing smiles & finding as many ways in a day to catch CATCH-M together & know as you do, you are building FORTUNE-FILLED TREASURE CHESTS FOR ALL!
- On your CATCH-M ADVENTURE: Notice every where you go, any place you see someone’s CATCH-M & be encouraged! Know you are not alone. You have help from above, from within, & from other heroes who are out there fighting for their dreams too!
- Have fun naming the different smiles you see: My children have seven different kind—1. laugh-out-loud smiles 2. polite smiles 3. we have fun plan smiles 4. talking about their friends smiles 5. laughing at themselves smiles 6. uncomfortable smiles 7. dreams do come true smiles
- Send your CATCH-M on his own ADVENTURE: Mail him to friends, relatives, or any place in the world. Have them take photos of your CATCH-M experiencing new things. Put up a map & place pens where ever your CATCH-M has been — It is a great way to celebrate our way around this amazing planet!
- CATCH-M Chain Letters: Draw CATCH-M & on the back write your favorite thing about the person you are mailing it to. Have them mail that smile forward along with theirs to the next person. Someone could end up opening a letter with 30 Smiles 🙂
- Play CATCH-M GAMES: In the Fun Section under World Smile Day . You play with eggs. Why? Because they have “Golden Treasure” inside just like us with our hearts full of stars! Start by drawing your CATCH-M on eggs then play: 1. CATCH-M Roulette with a real & hard boiled egg 2. CATCH-M Relays 3. CATCH-M Catches 4. CATCH-M Cuddles
- Experience your smile inviting stars to WHOOSH into your life & WHAM lighting the gift of stars in your heart giving you the extra courage you need to LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE TOO!
SMILES EXPRESSED, SHARED & TRAVELED WITH BUILD FORTUNE- FILLED TREASURE CHESTS FOR ALL!
Finally, Make A CATCH-M MURAL with your family, classroom, neighbors, or friends & enjoy A LIVE BIG COMMUNITY!
My family with our CATCH-M’s on plates for LOVE BIG’s release in 2019. Note the CATCH-M MURAL in the background. They are all our CATCH-M’s we made for DREAM BIG’s release in 2017. How fun to see how different everyone’s smile can be!
Celebrate! SMILE & BELIEVE together to “WHOOSH!” – “WHAM!” light the gift of stars in each of our hearts! The animals call this fun: “CATCHING CATCH-M” – “LIGHTING THE DIVINE SPARK IN OUR HEART” – “FINDING THE TREASURE IN OUR CHEST” – “BEING STAR-MAKERS” -“FUSER OF TWO HYDROGEN ATOMS TO SHINE BRIGHT”
